In-Home Postpartum Physical Therapy Program

Following childbirth, it’s important that mothers take care of themselves, too.

To assist with postpartum recovery, Good Shepherd offers in-home postpartum physical therapy for mothers who are two to 12 weeks post-delivery.

A Good Shepherd physical therapist will visit the home to help with:

  • Appropriate exercises to improve post-partum mobility, posture and strength
  • Body mechanics for caring for baby (i.e., diaper changes)
  • Body mechanics for breastfeeding to decrease or prevent neck pain
  • Ergonomics for baby-wearing to decrease low back pain
  • C-section scar healing
  • Diastasis recti healing

After 12 weeks postpartum – and when it becomes easier to leave the house with baby – patients can transition appointments to Good Shepherd Physical Therapy’s Souderton location. Note: Internal pelvic floor physical therapy is not provided in-home at this time.
